New Year's Resolutions for Improvement

Date: 01/01/2019

People make personal resolutions to change their ways or  to improve their behavior. All of the resoltuions are usually good, but some are much more beneficial than others. Most are about their personal activities, but they can just as well be about how to improve as an employee or how to do better business. Here are some suggestions that either help your employer, help your career, or help make you more successful.
Learn to be more thoughtful and less emotional about your decisions. Stop and think about what you are saying or doing and how this will affect your relationships in the future.
Practice time management. Rather than search through a pile of paper to find what you need, practice filing each document, note, or report as soon as you have read it so you won’t have to go through the pile over and over again.
Practice greeting people with a smile and a positive attitude. Avoid being negative. Make a habit of thanking fellow employees for their help and thanking suppliers for exceptionally good service.
Make a habit of taking the time to read each receipt, proposal, or contract carefully before signing.
Obtain new bids on purchased items that have not been shopped for in a long time.
Start taking a course or reading a book to help improve your skills.
